I Came to buy a smile’—today’—
But just a single smile’—
The smallest one upon your face
Will suit me just as well’—
The one that no one else would miss
It shone so very small’—
I’m pleading at the “counter”'—sir’—
Could you afford to sell’—
I’ve Diamonds’—on my fingers’—
You know what Diamonds are?
I’ve Rubies’—live the Evening Blood’—
And Topaz’—like the star!
‘Twould be “a Bargain” for a Jew!
Say’—may I have it’—Sir?
